mitt romney lost the election, john boehner, while you were sleeping through the republican's phone call. this is how republicans have been handling the news of this election this week so far. this is my actual handwriting. that's how bad my handwriting is on the printout of a newspaper article i read when i first got into work today. i went back to look for the article this afternoon i realized that is what i had written in the margin of the article not paying attention to the fact i was doing it. wrote the word "ha" five times and exclamation point and star. here's why i did that without noticing it. from oklahoma republican tom cole, what does he think about mitt romney and paul ryan losing this election? his take away is this. the paul ryan budget passed a pretty big test. we had to run around the country and defend it. the ryan budget proved itself a viable platform on which to run and be reelected. wow. just to reiterate, this is what happened on election night. how does this constitute the ryan budget passing a big test. it took a big test but it did not pass that test, two v
noticing it. from oklahoma republican tom cole, what does he think about mitt romney and paul ryan losing this election? his take away is this. the paul ryan budget passed a pretty big test. we had to run around the country and defend it. the ryan budget proved itself a viable platform on which to run and be reelected. wow. just to reiterate, this is what happened on election night. how does this constitute the ryan budget passing a big test. it took a big test but it did not pass that test, two very deficit things. the lesson of this election for republicans appears to be all that stuff we ran on, it totally worked. think about what determines what the republican party does next. what determines how they fix their political problems. the question of who is going to be the new face of the republican party and how they will course correct after this disastrously bad election for them, it all depends how they assess what just went wrong and why it went so wrong. what do they think their problem is that caused the country to reject them so emphatically in 2012. the signs how their self-asses
column where they were in 2008 and into the republican column. i think romney gets 279 to 281. >> i think this is premature. >> do you believe that ohio has been settled. >> no, i don't. we've got to be careful about calling things when we have 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote to count. >> karl rove said we should figure out what the deal is. >> the doubt that karl rove has attempted to place. >> you are comfortable with the call in ho i how? >> he's angry and pushing his finger in the air and looking sideways and looking mean and angry. >> that's awkward. >> they irradiated him as a rich guy who didn't care about ordinary people when he was on the side of ugly stuff about bain capitol and being a rich guy and i think he appropriately responded. >> this is mostly a tactical election. >> after they lose, it wasn't my fault, oh, romney, i tell you man, if i just had $800 million, maybe i could have done something with it. loser. i never get tired of those old prediction clips. he's little all the states, they're comfortably in his column. anyway, it gets bet
with romney. what is romney's position on the republican party? almost nil. i do not think he will run again. obama wants to sit down with him and talk to him. that is a sign he will then across the aisle. you can be tough for you candy a partial -- or you can be approachable. clinton was approachable. talk but very approachable. i think he is going to -- you're not going to have to run again. there is an advantage to that. you can go all out. he disappointed a lot of liberals. i thought obama was very hawkish. much more than they expected him to be. he did not close guantanamo. he was very disappointing in a lot of ways. the economic tide is turning already. whoever got elected this time, the mood in the country is better. the economic situation -- i think that is a pendulum. they go this way and that way and we're in a recovery mode now, i would guess. it is tough to read. well the republicans sit down with him? i think they have no other course to go. i am optimistic. tavis: let's go right at it. what the republican party has to do to remain relevant? i suggest to the other day and got in
. i, like many conservatives, thought mitt romney would pull out a victory, i, like many republicans, am extremely disappointed. the autopsy of what went wrong is ongoing. there will be conflicting opinions on the cause of death for the romney campaign and all those senate races. i happen to think that mitt romney ran an overly cautious and defensive campaign which allowed the other side to define him. perhaps with the exception being that first debate. some establishment republic types say this requires the party, however, to be less conservative, to be more moderate. and it's no surprise that democrats agree. i find that depressing. conservatism won huge for the g.o.p. in 2010. and it beat back a union backed recall just recently in wisconsin. but in just two years, a short period of time it's become unmarkable? nice try to. paraphrase george will, for mitt romney, conservatism was kind of like a second language he wasner comfortable articulating it or arguing it. of course latinos and new women and voters weren't sold on it either. in that vacuum they ended up buying the that nove

for republicans even before election day explaining how mitt romney's loss in the election would not be a reflection on anything about mitt romney or his policies or campaign or the republican party. they were explaining that before mr. romney even lost. october 31st, campaign sources told cbs news super storm sandy stalled romney's momentum. a few days before the election, if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit. the blame the storm line has continued all through today especially with former mississippi governor haley barbour speaking on the "today" show. >> hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum romney had coming in the end of october. >> this is a narrative republicans are telling themselves, that the beltway media is also now starting to tell itself because they keep hearing republicans say it. it is not a theory born from reality. this is a checkable thing, empirical idea. their theory is mitt romney was on track to win this thing if it weren'
of the republican party after romney's loss. >> congressman paul ryan, is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy -- >> well, there you go. paul ryan, you're not the leader of the republican party right now. officially here in washington, it is, speaker boehner. we're seeing more of the republican blame game. a romney supporter posted a tell all about the romney's campaign get out the vote effort known as orca. quote, this is what they told us. project orca is a massive understand taking. the newest unprecedented and most tech logically advanced plan to win the 2012 presidential election. pretty much everything in that sentence is false, this person keeps writing. and he said, the bitter iron any of this entire endeavor was that a supposedly small government candidate gutted the local structure of get out the vote efforts in favor of a centralized faceless organizations. in this case, their boston headquarters. wrap your head around that. karl rove whose failure to win victories at the helm of the cross roads had this defense on tuesday. >> he su
the facts of what mitt romney did with g.s. steel. >> i think thehe republican party and mitt romney has clearly been and could be brepted as an attack on the issues that matter to women. >> this is a guy who thinks corporations are people and straps the family dog to the roof of his car. >> he is speaking to their friends out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position. >> the word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years. let him prove that he has paid tax because he hasn't. >> this is the e. coli club. >> going to put you back in chains. >> sean: this was an important race and a full-contact sport. so is football. what the president did to smear mitt romney and his family was the equivalent of a 15-yard face mask, a blow to the quarterback's head and a late hit, all rolled into one -- only he didn't care if he was penalized, he wanted to secure another four years ofepless golf, jay-z, beyonce, while the economy was tanking, terrorists murdering americans in benghazi. joining me now in the studio, radio talk show host, the outspoken b
to a win for president obama. republicans have been making things up to convince people that romney was going to win this thing. >> if they're in trouble with the early vote they will lose ohio and the election. >> these polls are conducted by people who want obama elected and want their agenda. >> too many people weighting their model on the 2008 model showing a disproportionate turnout. >> it will be the biggest surprise in recent american political history. it will rekindle the whole question as to why the media played this race as a nail biter where in fact i think romney will win by quite a bit. >> republicans and the romney campaign actually believed all of this garbage, so their defeat was pretty hard to handle. one romney advisor said romney was quote shell-shocked by the loss. meanwhile, the mastermind behind most of the lies is still making stuff up. karl rove wrote in an op-ed today, the president was also lucky. this time the october surprise was not dirty trick, but an act of god, hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidenti
romney lost. i'm more excited about why president obama won. and i don't care if the republican party rehabilitates itself. they are so out of touch, and those comments right there, we all now how they're connected to the republican party and the scorch serve tiff movement, but does this strengthen the democratic party? does this kind of thinking just shove more people right into the independent-minded arena that is going to favor the progressive agenda in america? what do you think? >> i think it absolutely does. if you want to look at minorities, african-americans with 93%, hispanics 71% for the president. ation-americans now the fastest grown minority group in the country went 73% for president obama and the democrats. these are numbers that make the republican party not just in the long term, in the medium term, and maybe in the short term unsustainable. it's untenable to be losing the future of the country by these kinds of margins. either they change or they die, they go the way of the when i ig party, and the civil war we'll see in the republican party. the opening salvos were
in its covert message. the message that they decided on was essentially to say that the romney republican agenda and they were always very clever in tying demands -- the man to his party is that he and they are not running for you. and they did it on the level of values. for women, one was the war on women, what was the contraception issue about? but to say they don't understand you, they don't care about you, they don't value you, they are not running for you. what was being about? tax cuts for the wealthy about? talk to the blue-collar, struggling worker, white, black hispanic or asian who struggles from paycheck to paycheck may go through periods of an insurance feature to say when it comes to the economy, they think the way is to give their friends more money and hope that they do well by you. you don't believe that, you are not running for you. latinos, the immigration issue was about. if you want to be part of the american jim they want you to pass the d.r.e.a.m. act. they are not running for you. does anyone have any questions as to why with those series of arguments and that ser
were not just predicting romney will eke it out in ohio. it's republican leaning, et cetera. they were saying we'd have a romney landslide in the swings states. and to come to that conclusion means i think you're a little bit out of touch with reality. and you better be right. we get a test. we get a test and it's the good thing about making a prediction or forecast you're called on your-- can i say ( bleep ) on tv? >> jon: not on this show you can't. on this program i believe you can only say ( bleep ). ( laughter ). i believe. if i'm correct. but that is-- what so struck me is i am not particularly versed in statistics, but as i read your blog, it was being used as a totem for the left because it was so positive for obama but the underpinnings of it were these polls statistically would not all have the same margin of error in the same distribution. >> right. >> jon: if it were not statistically provable it was moving in that protection. >> yeah, unless there were some bias in the polls. if anything the polls were a little low on some states for obama. and that some of the them unde
voted for romney. the marriage gap was a whopping 41 points with america voters decide as a republican in this election, and a growing group of nonmarried overwhelmingly democratic. all of these data are in our new aei political report prepared by andrew. we also want to thank claude for getting the support done with all of the latest 2012 data from 22 key demographic groups available for you today. the demographic changes are being felt in congress, too. david wasserman of "the cook political report" wrote that for the first time ever white men will no longer be a majority of the democratic caucus. in 1953, he says there were 98% of house democrats, and 97% of house republicans. along with the demographic data, the exit polls show obama was able to choose the economic issue, and he won overwhelmingly on empathy. we are going to begin today with michael barone who will tell us what happened and why. all of us on this bill have made election predictions over the course of election watching. sometimes we get it right, sometimes we get it wrong. in his "washington examiner" column yesterd
need to avoid this fiscal cliff. >>> following mitt romney's sound defeat top republican officials take stock of what went wrong. members of the gop tell the washington post they plan a series of polls and focus groups to find new ways to appeal to more voters. could it lead to more cooperation with the white house? we put that question to former house speaker newt gingrich. >> i do think the problems we face are so large that it's irresponsible for the two governing parties to just start out by saying let's have four years of gridlock. they should at least try to find is there a common ground which is compatible with the values of both republicans and democrats that at least moves the ball forward 50% even if neither side gets 100% of what they want. >> newt gingrich and his wife callista were here during our noon news to promote their two new books. >>> there is a lot of talk today about a video just released by president obama's campaign and it features a rare emotional moment from the president who we all know is known for keeping it cool. >> because what you guys have done and the
in the minds of governor romney and republicans, but it hurt president obama when he said you didn't build that. those are pivotal statements made in the campaign which was a contest between government and individual freedom, opportunity, and entitlement and, unfortunately, for the republican party, their standard bearer and whatever else, and he is one of the fine of the men we have run for office but unfortunately for the republican party he could not articulate to the middle class and those who aspire to it, the reasons for fidelity to those values that make up the republican party. >>neil: what happens to the jazz base? they didn't come out. everyone was worried about the democrats being determined out and not into it but it was the other way around. >>reporter: it was. and it was interesting to see all of the analysis since election night but one big section of voters, a cross section of voters has been left out of the analysis and it is shocking. you don't hear people mentioning ron paul. what happened to the ron paul voters? it is as if were never under consideration. he didn't endorse m
. this was an appalling number of la toneos, supporting republican -- supporting mitt romney, out there. the argument is, if republicans just embrace amnesty, then latinos will vote for republicans. do you buy that argument? >> well, i mean, i should point out two things. it is not just latinos who voted overwhelmingly for the president, it's also asian-american voters, who were, what? 72% of the vote went to the president. that's an even larger margin. both of these block, latino and asian-americans care about immigration reform, not amnesty, which is what people on fox news-- the word you throw around in here. we want -- >> okay. so for the sake of argument, call it what you want -- immigration reform. again, if mitt romney -- i want your honest opinion, if mitt romney had come out and said, i am for immigration reform, i will pursue that in my first term, do you think mitt romney would have won 50% of the latino vote? >> he certainly would have won a lot bigger than he did. >> really?! >> yes. i mean, look, what was really missing, i am saying this as someone who followed governor rom no around in th
of the cia resigns over an extramarital affair. republicans blindsided by mitt romney's loss, how did so many get it so wrong? and anger boiling over new york -- over in new york where gas is now being rationed and thousands of people -- thousands are still without power. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin this hour with a bombshell announcement rocking the intelligence community and sending shock waves across washington and way beyond. david petraeus, the highly decorated u.s. army general who's run the central intelligence agency for the last 14 months has suddenly resigned citing an extramarital affair. our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is joining us now with more. chris, you have more details. what can you tell our viewers? >> wolf, we can tell you that david petraeus sent this letter to the rest of the cia this afternoon admitting that he had an affair and telling the cia that he had gone to the white house yesterday and asked president obama to accept his resignation. we're also
a romney was a republican nominee for president, rich successful businessman, maybe one added to all would know he was a mormon. other than that, they knew nothing about the guy. the obama campaign comes in and takes a baseball bat and basically beat his brains out. in the swing states, he never recovered from that. even when the first it happened, even when his numbers went up and all 50 states, they go up less in the swing states than they did in the other 40 something states. that made a huge difference. then you saw that one campaign chose to have a fabulous job of get out the vote. both sides tried. the romney campaign did a lot. to me, campaigns are evolutionary on the two sides. look back to 2004. matt dowd, they put together a fabulous state of our campaign in 2004. republicans really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but onl
republicans that mitt romney was going to win. they all seemed genuinely quite shocked that he didn't. why was that belief so built on sand, do you think? >> well, of course, election results are a little like post-modern art. people can look at the picture and see different things and some of these theories that people have post-election are sometimes hard to prove or disprove. but i think at a minimum we know this. mitt romney is a very honorable and gracious man and a very talented leader, but the republican party has some work to do and if you do a gap analysis of this election, you see a significant gap of course with hispanic and latino voters, with women voters, with blue collar voters, i've said once before we need to be the party of not just the country club but also sam's club. then we have some other work to do, too, piers. when you go out to the people in the marketplace and you ask for their vote, they want to be able to see that you can relate to them with their concerns and their worries, and governor romney i think had a very good message but let's tip the cap to the obama
republicans focus on what went wrong inside mitt romney's campaign. we'll talk with former secretary of state condoleezza rice. >> frustration gross in the northeast. new york begins to ration gas and thousands still remain in the dark. >> but we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> we're not going over the cliff. we're determined not to go over the cliff. >> nerves rattled in washington and on wall street. over a looming fiscal crisis. >> steep budget cuts and tax increases that will kick in on january 1st unless congress and the president reach a deal. >> raising tax rates is not acceptable and frankly couldn't even pass the house. >> today president obama is expected to deliver his first remarks on his agenda since election night. noomb snowboard everybody is talking about the fiscal cliff. i would talk about the fiscal cliff if i knew what it was. >> can't get through friday with this amount of gas. >> parts of new york rationing gas in the wake of superstorm sandy. extreme weather is here to change. climate change is a reality. >> the judge sentenced
, if i were to point at one factor, it was romney losing the race, and it was losing the race because he was not conservative enough on dollars and cents, and i think the republicans' social agenda turns off most americans. john: well, you did get 1% of the vote, which is pretty good, and a higher vote total than any libertarian has before, but it does seem to be a two-party country. people think republican or democrat. it's going to take some work to open brains. >> well, i think so, and then you talked in your earlier segment about initiatives that did pass. marriage equality, legalizing, regulating marijuana like alcohol in colorado. i think that -- i think that is going to change worldwide drug policy. wow. like i say, coloradoans get it, and they did it. i applaud colorado. john: you join us from new mexico, back in your home state, going to lick your wounds and go back to private life? [laughter] >> well, by "lick wounds ," i have a big part of my life, and i hope to regain some ultra fitness in the next month, and not that i'm not a fit guy right now, but i'm looking forward to th
the election and run up to the election, republicans said, mitt romney is winning the majority of independents. he will win the election. that was not the case. independents are already heavily republican group. host: independent -- independents 50%. obama on tuesday, for the 2000 elections when obama won 52% of those who identified as independents to john mccain's 40%. this was a group were focused on. the candidates were trying to reach those independents. you're saying not all the independents are truly independent? guest: they mean a lot of things. some people mean, i really go back and forth, sometimes i vote democratic, republican. that is one group. other people meehan i consistently vote for one party or the other, but i do not think of myself as a member of that party. you really have to distinguish between help people identify themselves, and how people actually vote, which is not the same thing. host: moses is from new york and the democratic line. caller: i want to comment on the latino vote. i know you had a guest before. how latinos perceive romney as being an interventionist .an
than romney? >> jeb bush. >> jeb bush. interesting. you're sort of an establishment republican. >> yeah, of course. i'm not a tea party. i will say though i think the tea party reaction was a reaction not to what bob was saying, but a reaction to big government, much of what -- >> you're -- okay. look, i think jeb is the best of that family in many ways, but let me tell you something. it's not a bad family, but he's certainly the best of them. let me tell you the problem with what you said, feary, and gave away. this is a dangerous thing you have given. one of my little speech notes i give when i talk to groups is just think about the country we're in. from the time i paid attention to politics in 1952 to 2004, the same three names showed up on every republican ticket, nixon, let's see, bush, then filling in the blanks, bob dole and back by popular demand in '96 bob dole. now you're saying the solution to the republican future is bush. it's a legacy. can't you broaden it out beyond the anglo-saxon names bush and dole and nixon. can't you get out wider? >> chris, let's not kid ourselves.
